Compliance requires a multi pronged approach. First, planning. Second, maintaining. Third, correcting. The best method to stay in compliance is good planning and practices from the onset to prevent issues from occurring. Once a plan is setup, staying in compliance requires participation from all levels of the company, including education and instruction, auditing of on-going practices, and evolving as the company and regulations change. When an issue does arise, correcting the issue in the most cost effective and responsible method requires expert knowledge of rules and regulations, and attention to detail.
